One of my favorite rubbers. (Table Tennis) Very good grip from variety of shots. Short shots or full stroke loops this rubber grips very well. Faster than most other hybrids maintaining the same grip or better. The best feature is that it still performs when you can't hit full stroke. If you are pressed and can only manage to get a half stroke this can still put the ball over the net. Where other hybrids would fall flat. This has a large margin of error. I use it on both sides. For BH it is good at flipping and full loops. FH has loads of power from in close or far away. I can block incoming spins and control where I place it. Having said that this is for more advanced players. Lower level players may find it too fast to control. It is rated at 55 deg but it doesn't feel that hard. Compared to other rubbers it feels softer. Maybe because after it breaks in it softens a little. The only downside is that it wears out quickly. When it starts to get transparent in the middle after 2 months it will quickly fade. The tackiness disappears and you find it has no grip. The performance is not a gradual decline but rather it falls off a cliff. When it goes it goes quickly.

I successfully use this paddle face on forehand. I also bought a rubber Stiga DNA Platinum hard variant, which I use on backhand. This is my first time playing a hard rubber, and I don't regret it. I had to go from soft to hard. I was able to compare the two types of rubber, and I can say that Dragon Grip it has average durability than Platinum. Dragon grip loses its grip if it plays in a room where there is no air conditioning, and there is moisture. The rubber is loaded with moisture and the ball slips , compared to Stiga Platinum, which is not so sensitive to moisture. He has these two incovenients. Stiga Dragon grip is a very good rubber , but when it breaks, I want to exchange it with Stiga DNA Platinum extra hard.

Got my Dragon Grip a month ago and I like it. It has all that I was missing in chinese rubbers - some extra catapult effect. The rubber is good in almost every element. But it's perfect in powerful topspins. I has an only one downside - the topshit wears off quite fast. After only a month of play it has a spot in the center and near the edges. But still it plays well and doesn't loose the grip and tackiness after I clean it.

I never liked Chinese-style rubber (I play with DNA PRO H). I got this rubber to play with for a while. I got used to it.
To have enough dynamic, I strengthened him with a Long Booster. With this booster the rubber is a weapon. Very high spin, high rotation, high control . Really interesting and great rubber.

This is my first experience with a hard, Chinese-style rubber, so please understand my comments as compared to Euro/Japanese style rubbers. The main thing to say about Dragon Grip is that the spin is absolutely brutal! It's slow compared to Euro/Japanese rubbers, but fast enough for my liking. Superb control. I can't comment on consistency as this is my first sheet, and I've only had it for a week so I can't comment on durability yet either. Spin monster!
